Poem for fall

Example
Wisława Szymborska

A gale
stripped all the leaves from the trees last night
except for one leaf
left
to sway solo on a naked branch.

With this example
Violence demonstrates
that yes of course –
it likes it little jokes from time to time.

translated from the polish by Clare Cavanagh and Stanisław Barańczak
